I had a fine lunch with a friend. Sometimes Zolo can be a bit noisy (FAC and weekend nights), but we had excellent service and very tasty food! Waitperson was friendly and helpful as we relaxed for a good chat while we ate.

We love Zolo. We've always had great service and great food here. My kids even enjoy going, and they're not big fans of eating out.
